MIAMI BEACH — Diesel launched its first swimwear collection here by pairing bikinis with props like baseball helmets, boxing gloves, football pads and other sports gear to tie in with the “collegiate varsity” theme in the brand’s sportswear collection.
The show on Thursday night kicked off Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek Swim, running July 18 to 21, in tents at the Raleigh Hotel. Bucking the tent tradition, Diesel’s models, including perennial swimwear favorite May Andersen and 17-year-old singer Teyana Taylor, in her modeling debut, walked over water — a runway constructed over the length of the pool.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
